's about the 1968 election. the democratic electorate was split. they were not unified behind their candidate. on the right, southern white democrats who were against civil rights, they were being peeled off to vote for george wallace, the symbol of proud segregation. also, different problem for the democrats. people hated the vietnam war. and the president at the time was a democrat, lyndon b. johnson. so if you were against the war, as most americans at that point were -- this is the gallop polling on the war -- the number of people who thought it was a mistake -- if you were against the war as increasingly everybody was, you were so the psyched to vote for lbj's successor. so the democrats were losing their appeal in the south because of racism, and they were losing the anti-war vote. the republican candidate tried to take advantage of that split, and was this handsome devil. nixon in 1968 was running against a democratic party that he knew was split. he was, in response, pledging to get rid of the draft. and he claimed to have a plan to end the war. he argued that if you w

she picked was this man on the left, congressman tim scott. only first elected to the house in 2010. only had one term when he got the nod to move to the senate. thanks to that appointment, he was the first african-american senator south carolina has ever had. now it is his seat in the house that is vacant. and tomorrow, democrats and republicans hold their primary elections to try to fill that seat. on the democratic side, the nominee is expected to be elizabeth colbert bush. her brother uses a fancier pronunciation of the name, known as stephen colbert. on the republican side, the front runner almost as famous as stephen colbert and more famous than his sister but not for a good reason, former governor mark sanford. he has a big national profile, but it is because of his fake hiking trip. mark sanford apologized, finished his term as governor and withdrew from public life for two years. now he is back, trying to win back the public's trust and respect by trying to win back the congressional seat that he once held for three terms. mr. hiking the trail is only one of 16 republicans

that the lieutenant governor had left elected office, left the number two office in the state so that her former association with a certain company would not end up quote distracting from our important work on behalf of florida families. well, the distracts company in question is this. this is the former florida lieutenant governor. and she's appearing in a psa/ad for this distracting company. in the two years proceeding her appearance in the ad, the governor had a pr firm that reported that group was the primary source of income for her firm. the group purports to be a charity for america's military veterans. to help veterans struggling with homelessness. it is led by this man, whose title in the group is national commander. his name is jerry bass. if you'd like to see a more recent picture, we have one here in the form of his mug shot. this was taken last week. her association with him and his supposed veterans charity made her continuing in office as florida's lieutenant governor an untenable prospect. jerry bass was arrested last week in florida amid allegations that his group supposedly rai
comments from an elected republican that person is quickly snapped back into line. that's what happened this week when ohio governor john kasich who i liked changed his position on gay civil unions. let's watch what he said. >> rob portman made news this past week with his position on gay marriage and changing it because of his son coming out. could you ever see a position, a time when you yourself might change your position? >> i really can't see one. i mean, i talked to rob and encouraged him, and, you know, if people want to have civil unions and have some way to transfer the resources i'm for that. i just think marriage is between a man and a woman, but if you want to have a civil union, that's fine with me. >> twice he said that one answer it's okay to have civil unions and gay marriage and civil unions are no small matter in ohio. in 2004, a ballot measure out in the general election amending the ohio constitution to outright ban gay marriage and civil unions and that was with the evangelical vote, and that's w.'s favor and winning him the presidential election with john customer
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton.

in the general election, however, tonight right here on this program, i am making a personal plea to ashley judd. i am urging you for the sake of the democratic party, for the sake of the country, ignore the former flphilandering president, throw your hat in the race. if you do, i'll show more ads like this one. >> you know what this country needs, an independent voice for obama. >> i am committed to president obama and vice-president biden. i think he's a brilliant man. he is now able to flower more as the president i knew he could be. >> someone who will never forget where she came from. >> and tennessee is home. >> kentucky. >> is home. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> a lot-- >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal. isn't that what we need? ashley judd, an obama following, hollywood liberal from tennessee, kentucky. >> tennessee is home. >> and run, ashley, run, and the soon to be great senator from tennessee. fox news contributor. >> did you say former. >> tamara holder and jedidiah. >> i'm in charge. >> obviously not-- >> i'm in charge here. >> do i have to join yo
, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
. >> neil: and the glad stuff -- >> after the 2012 election. now the president said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. you won't be able to find your doctor because 50% of doctors are giving up their independent practice. the laws creates creates so many disincentives so many panels from a door who want to have a private practice. premiums are going up because the law requires insurance companies to cover more, to cover people with serious preexisting illnesses. >> neil: apparently a loot more than was forecast the way this thing was built. >> oh, yes. young people who were primary supporters of president obama are going to see 100% premium increases. >> neil: what is the $63 fee about? >> that's something that is hitting employers. a lot of surprises for employers. >> neil: a identify they have not to pay. >> just rolls out in november. among the thousands of new regulation. employers are frantic because they're coming so late in the game. le. >> neil: be part of the plan or not. but it's a fee -- >> for every employee -- every dependent who is covered with insurance. third
an election in which they think they got shellacked. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. in the 2019 election. >> eric: your thoughts? >> greg: it's hard to take a rebranding suggestion from someone named reince priebus. it sounds like a disorder you get from a shampoo. it's true! the party doesn't need a makeover. they need a makeunder. the party has been victimized by the media who smeared them as uncool. no way to be a republican and be cool. it's associated also to being old. if you look at mccain, most people thought he was a cranky old guy, when he was a war hero who spent five-and-a-half years in a prison camp. most people didn't know that. they saw a cranky guy trying to beat a young black man for the office of the presidency. they need to simplify and say -- who do you want to be? you want to be an individual. you don't want to be part of the government. strive for achievement. how cool is that? that is what you get out to young people today. ref ject government influence. how simple is that? >> eric: is it smart for the g.o.p. and re
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
the country. we talked to over 50,000 people about the election, things they perceived went well. what the other side went well and things we didn't do that people wished we did. it was a full-blown analysis from everything to mechanics to campaign finance laws. >> greta: one of the questions, the perception according to you, is that the republican party-- >> according to polling. >> greta: a party of rich-- yeah, polling. party of rich, narrow, stuffy, out of touch people and you want to reach the minority, female and young. >> greta: how do you convince you have anything for them if you're part of the rich, stuffy-- >> and obviously that's perception. part of is if you're not showing up in the community, the perception and narrative becomes reality. when we announced yesterday and today is that the national party -- in 2013, mind you, after a presidential election, that's never been done, is just going to spend just on the political oranges itself 10 million dollars which will include hundreds, a few people down the hallway, but hundreds of people in communities across the country ad
, and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me tonow that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you where you're doing a magazine exchange in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons that they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in it, and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly on the surface, it is.
display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes some 200-plus recommendations for reversing gop fortunes in 2016. among the recommendations, reducing the number of primary debates. moving the party's convention from august to july or even june. and to go where the report says the gop has not gone enough. we're talking about outreach, and inclusion. here's what rnc chairman reince priebus is saying about that. >> we're going to be announcing a $10 million initiative just this year which will include hundreds of people, paid, across the country, from coast to coast, in hispanic, african-american, asian communities, talking about our party, talking about our brand, talking about what we believe in. >> at the bottom of the hour, ari fleischer the former bush white house press secretary will join us. he co-chaired this rnc project. he helped write this report. >>> president obama expected to announce his pick for labor secretary today. it's thomas perez, the assistant attorney
of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incept and rape. things t
these bills. >> greta: are you elected? and if so, what's sort of been the response from the community to your position? >> i am elected. i'm in my third term and i've been the sheriff for ten and the response has been overwhelming. in the last 18 hours received over 6, 700 e-mails and out of those only ten have been negative. all the rest have been supportive. >> greta: no doubt in your mind, you're not going to enforce these two laws. >> there's absolutely no doubt in my mind i will not enforce these laws because i can't, i won't, i don't have the desire or the will to do it. >> greta: sheriff, thank you for joining us, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> greta: also tonight the possibility of congress approving an assault weapons ban just got slimmer. senate democratic leaders are now removing the ban from the gun control measure that the senate is set to debate. instead, the assault weapons ban will be offered later as an amendment. and that is according to a sponsor senator dianne feinstein and the senate majority leader, harry reid saying he's concerned for the assault position would blo

all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria
knows what is happening in jordan and you have a new israel government elected not to make peace or more but simply deal with the orthodox in the israel society. this is the most unripe situation for diplomacy any american president has walked into. >> mike, this american president, i think, has bent over backwards to be an honest broker between the israelis and palestinians and he did so in a way that actually angered the israelis. so hamas launches rockets into israel while the president is there and what do they do? they actually push away a guy that, again, is trying to be an honest broker. >> yeah, he has tried to be an honest broker and paid a price to it to some extent in domestic politics. what do you think of the theory, it's more than a theory, i would guess, that this trip is based largely less on policy than the president's personality, convincing the israelis and the israeli government that i am your friend. the united states is your friend. we are not going to falter or hesitate or anything when it comes to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the
. >> sean: a political point. no, but he's doing things-- >> pursuing an election, and it's very worrisome and hurting americans. >> sean: 2014? >> 2014, hey, folks, that's what -- i don't care what he does when you're looking at him now when the poll ratings are going down. that's his objective. he gambled that he could change the muslim world and the fact is, we have tolerated -- i remember when the members of this administration, members of congress saying the muslim brotherhood they're not bad. they are poison and we're seeing that in egypt and it's a-- you know, you have to make a tough stand. >> sean: liz, you know, when he you say that the israelis are the descendents of pigs and apes, 9/11 truther, this is not hard to figure out and predict. the media got it wrong, the president got it wrong and a few of us here got it right. you being one of them, i was one of them. i don't know where you were. >> it's worse than what pat is saying. i don't think that this president is watching the united states decline for political gain. i think he doesn't mind if the united states declines. i t

you, and i don't think there's any challenge, that budget was debated in the presidential election. it was clear that what ryan has put up in what he calls a budget and what he and mr. romo ran on was -- romney ran on was the republican platform. now they bring it back as if there was no election. >> neil: do you think the budget submitted by senator patty murray, which doesn't approach balance and increases spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so
with the 2014 mid-term election? that happens the same year this is rolling out. >> it will be a train wreck and it is going to be as nina indicates not a theoretical argument but a practical one. people will see the real effects. also, the sham way in which it was constructed. chuck asks where is the money going to come from if you don't tax device makers? it comes from the taxes. this is going to be added on the deficit. they constructed a budget, that made it look as if, as obama promised, not going to cost the treasury a dime. well, the cbo says it will cost $1.3 trillion over a decade. so there is an increase in $1.3 trillion plus a dime in taxes. so that it ends up looking like it's not going to cost. but there will be increases in taxes everywhere. this one will be canceled. it's ridiculous. this is the one area, medical devices where the u.s. has tremendous advantage in technology over the rest of the world. why would you kill an industry that is so productive? so, the money will be cut. it will have to come out of taxes. the $1.3 trillion will become $1.6 trillion. it will climb. ul

community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule

happened was no surprise. conservative democrats in the senate up for re-election risk riling up pro-gun forces in an election year if they vote for the ban. democratic supporters like retiring michigan senator carl levin are frustrated do. you think it's worth just having a vote? >> sure. i think it's important that people express their views and have a chance to vote those views. there are people back home that can judge if aagree or disagree. >> reporter: bad for democrats. >> it's not the politics i want to get here. this goes way bond politics. >> reporter: late thursday harry reid released a statement saying he wants to bring a gun safety bill to the floor after the upcoming recess, including provisions on background checks. he said he also wants a vote on an assault weapons ban amendment. so there appears to be one last chance for the senate to vote on the ban after all. the nra saying they've always expected there would be a vote on the ban and they say they are prepared for a lot of pressure on senators to pass it. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> our thanks to joe. later on "
worse than we were hearing here. two years later the republican party has the best off-year election and we march on to victory. >> because reality changes. a vietnam war going to bed and change people's minds. back in '89 republicans won five of the last six elections and electoral lock on the country. they have five six straight elections and south and west and democrats are done. then bill clinton shows up and, importantly, challenges his own party on stub substance, not process. he says we are brain dead. we have got to change on welfare and let people know we are tough on crime. he is a death penalty democrat. now people are saying the republican party is dead. >> but, charles, two years after bill clinton won said, we changed plolitic forever. my only point is i'm all for the hand wringing. nobody has been more critical of the republican party than myself, but sometimes it just comes down to blocking and tackling. getting the best quarterback and getting guys and women that know how to block and tackle. and this campaign was run horrifically the past year. >> if i can play devi
party to overhaul the gop. that comes on the heels of november's election loss. the rnc admitting in a new report, that they are saying that the party is out of touch with voters nationwide they believe. here is a quote from that report. time for republicans on the federal level to learn from successful republicans on the state level in time to smartly change course, modernize the party and learn once again how to appeal to more people including those who share some but not all of our conservative principles. 30 states currently have republican governors. virginia governor bob mcdonnell is one of them. good to have you with us today. >> reporter: thanks, martha. martha: what do you think when you hear that term to modernize the party? >> well i think it means we need to start winning and the fact that we have lost a couple of, two consecutive presidential races means that we've got to figure out what we're missing and who we're missing. and i think the message to young voters new voters, ethnic voters, casual voter that comes out irv four years to vote in the presidential race, th
think they loaded all the sweeteners before the election, now all the real work is being done after it. and they did leave -- didn't leave themselves enough time. >> neil: he is not alone. mitch mcconnell telling us moments ago, i quote, messy bill that they didn't read and nearly 20,000 pages of new regulations leading to a messy result. florida senator marco rubio saying, as the ramifications apply, we're going to see how truly messy and disastrous this program will be for americans. so what's really up, doc? let's ask dr. ben carson, who warned this could be a mess, and apparently, doctor, very big mess, even in the eyes of the architects who are now feeling it. what do you make of it? >> well, you know, the fact of the matter is, it's the principle here. the principle is that the government has come in trying to take over one-sixth of the economy in order to be able to gain control of our lives, and of course it's going to be a mess. what does the government do that is good when it starts interfering with our lives? there are functions for the government. they need to remember what

the electi election. this was widely dismissed as liberal bias but this week the national republican committee echoed these point and leading the chorus of criticism. >> we're a little bit too mass focused and not focused in people's hearts so we don't relate to, i think, average americans more than we should. stuffy old guys too much. >> were the media right after all? joining us now, bill press and tim carney, political columnist for "washington examiner." republican party really narrowed its appeal last year. >> i think they narrowed their appeal, but i think the autopsy by the republicans does almost the opposite of what it should. i thought that the 47% type probably economic issue is where the republicans were doing more alienating. if you read this autopsy, it is basically on the economic issue says, well, we need to change our rhetoric on economics and change our policies socially. >> the press took a lot of heat for pointing out, take one example, hispanic voters are being turned off by the rhetoric. even the chairman of the party says, this is true. >> they're right. but th
live in a country that has elected twice an african-american president, and so we don't think this is germane anymore. >> you health hit is right on the head and that's what justice o'connor said. >> the issue here is this law basically violated the equal protection clause bought it tried to usurp authority that the public universities had in creating policy. >> neil: which is part of the argument, also in white candidates were passed over because of this. so they were slighted and -- >> that was not in the decision in this case. the decision dealt with -- >> neil: what about that argument? >> that's not the argument the court, the sick independent circuit court of appeals looked a. >> when it came to the voting, there was argument that isn't it going to be affirmative action in reverse? now whites overlooked for the same education positions or slots in a class. >> again, that is debatable, the issue here is that the university of michigan, michigan state university, wayne state university, public institutions, that are regulated by state laws, look at the state of michigan, t
